Youth Programing

This is (Not) About Drugs (TINAD)

About our Program 

This 1-hour, media-based presentation is targeted toward youth in grades 6-12. The program helps youth raise awareness of the risks of misusing prescription opioids, and encourages youth to seek alternatives to substances when dealing with stress. The presentation is great for schools, 4-H clubs, youth groups, youth conferences, or after-school programs.

Testimonials

“This was by far one of the best drug-type presentations that I have been a part of. I really like that it was more about the choices you make and not about “don’t do this, or  don’t do that.” The students were engaged and I could tell they were really thinking and digesting the material. It was also timely for my seniors who are going off to a new adventure this fall, it really put a seed in their minds to think about their actions and how this can change not only their lives, but the lives of others. I highly recommend this program!!”
